Renovations to the first floor of McKeldin Library will begin on Monday, May 21. Computers and furnishings will be removed to prepare the area for new flooring, painting, and electrical work. This includes all collections and seating in the periodicals room at the rear of the building. Work is expected to last through July.

Computers are available on Floors 2 and 6, and study spaces are available throughout the building.

Furniture removed from the periodicals room at the rear of McKeldin Library's first floor shows the vastness of the space, which has now been re-carpeted. Renovations will be complete before classes start this fall.
